    I worked at Gorkana full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment of the Gorkana U.S. office is a great setting to work in, especially for professionals seeking a highly innovative, fast-growing company with a start-up feel. The open layout allows for a collaborative environment that connects all teams including research, marketing/events and sales teams in a large open space. This is especially helpful for a growing media/technology company to work together on different initiatives. Also, media executives who are starting out in the research role will be exposed to different fields of work. There is a friendly rapport between all staff at both the U.S. and U.K office which makes it easy to create dialogue and brainstorm ideas. People are also very welcoming, which makes it easy for new staff to get well acclimated to the job. Gorkana also provides ample vacation time, with no inquiries on how you’re spending your day off. It is a definite plus for anyone in the U.S. to be allotted the same amount of holidays as the U.K. office. Compared to other technology companies, especially in New York City, there are opportunities for a good work life balance.

    Cons

    The lack of variety in the media executive role, where team members primarily do research based projects, can become monotonous at times. This may discourage many team members who are new to the media/technology industry to stay motivated at work. Because Gorkana prides itself on the quality of its product offerings, it is necessary to incorporate a change in attitude to show the importance of the work each and every media executive does on a day to day basis. Create a rotational program that allows team members to rotate between roles/projects to ensure that each member has the ability to gain exposure to other projects and make the most of their time at Gorkana, however long that may be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in all employees, and trust them! Build moral within colleagues to uncover the value of working at a company that not only has a great work culture, but one that is also interested in employees' personal development. I've come across many great team members both in the U.S. and U.K. teams who are passionate about the work they are doing. Be sure to engage them and increase esprit de corps within the smaller teams.
